Reports: Raiders trade WR Bryan Edwards to Falcons

The Las Vegas Raiders traded wide receiver Bryan Edwards to the Atlanta Falcons, multiple outlets reported Friday.

The Raiders also sent a 2023 seventh-round pick to Atlanta in exchange for a 2023 fifth-round selection.

Edwards, 23, caught 34 passes for 571 yards and three touchdowns in 16 games (12 starts) last season.

A third-round pick out of South Carolina in 2020, he had 11 catches for 193 yards and one TD in 12 games (three starts) in his rookie season.

The Raiders still have plenty of targets for quarterback Derek Carr. They acquired All-Pro wideout Davante Adams in a trade with the Green Bay Packers in March, while Hunter Renfrow is coming off a 103-catch, 1,038-yard season in 2021. Tight end Darren Waller has 252 receptions for 3,006 yards in the past three seasons.

The Falcons are trying to make up for the loss of receiver Calvin Ridley, suspended for the 2022 season for betting on NFL games. Atlanta took Southern California’s Drake London with the No. 8 overall pick in last month’s draft.
